The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy awards were held Sunday. The Daytime Emmys award daytime programming, mostly including soap operas, game shows, talk shows, and whatever category Judge Judy falls into. The big winner, so far as we are concerned, was Booster Gold.
Thanks to Linda Antwi of RedCarpetReport.tv, for asking Eric Martsolf the questions that we really want to hear.

Last week I got a tweet from Brian Miller, who you may know as @hificolor or the colorist on Booster Gold, volume 2.
June 12 — @boosterrific Not comic related, I created art for an archaeological dig. Appreciate if you tweet or blog about it. http://igg.me/at/frankincense
While this isn't strictly comic related, what could be more Boosterrific than a Booster Gold artist trying to raise money through merchandising? Of course I'll blog about it!
Visit Miller's campaign at indiegogo.com to find out where in the world Al Baleed, Oman, is and why anyone should want to be digging there. Contributors who pledge $30 or more to help the archaeological excavation before July 5 will receive a 13" x 19" lithograph (pictured at left) created and signed by Miller.
Get yourself a neat-o piece of art and give to a good cause — science! What more could anyone ask for?

Since Booster Gold had saved Superman's life in their last co-adventure, it was only fair that Superman return the favor when a murdering time-traveler came hunting Booster Gold. (That sort of thing happens all the time in Metropolis.)
Booster's past/future deeds began catching up with him when the Linear Man seized and tortured Skeets in Adventures of Superman #476. Fortunately for Booster, Superman was ready and willing to get involved. Unfortunately for Superman, some forces of nature are best left unchallenged.
For his trouble, Superman found himself amnesic and lost, indiscriminately bouncing from era to era through time. In the present, Booster promised Lois Lane that he would seek out help for Superman, but readers never saw him follow through.
Did Booster ever contact Kilowog as promised? It is hard to imagine that Booster wouldn't keep his word, even though Superman did ultimately find his way home without Booster's assistance. Sometimes, it really is the thought that counts.

I don't often encounter fan art of Booster Gold that I don't like. It's hard to make Booster Gold look bad.
Last week's poll question: What styles of Booster Gold art do you most prefer seeing? (40 votes)
So, who's ready for some big screen Superman? If you're headed to the movies, keep your eyes out for Blaze Comics and other DC Universe Easter eggs!
This week's poll question: Are you excited to see Man of Steel?

When we last left our hero in Smallville Season 11 #13, his powers had been remotely deactivated by "Legion Protocol 6." Making matters worse, he and Superman were soon teleported through time to the 31st century to find Earth and New Krypton at war.
In today's Smallville Season 11 #14, Booster will continue his quest to have the Legion of Super-Heroes restore his powers. If you've been reading this story as it has been released in weekly digital installments on comiXology.com, don't tell your floppy-only buying friends how things go from bad to terrible for our hero this month.
